From the Back Cover
Sisterhood, sharing, crafting, giving, laughing—that's what this book is about. It's also about spinning yarn and knitting socks. Not just any old yarn or any old socks, but glorious, zany, wildly colorful yarn for perfect-fitting socks of character and personality.
Dip-dyeing, pour-dyeing, and hand-painting yarns or wool rovings is as easy as making homemade soup, whether you use commercial dyes or Kool-Aid. If you like starting from scratch, spinning one-of-a-kind yarns is easier than you think. But you don't need to dye or spin to make your own well-crafted, perfectly-fitting socks—you can simply knit your own pair of life's true luxuries.
The Twisted Sisters Sock Workbook has it all—techniques, patterns, invaluable tips for creating authentic, perfect, made-to-order footwear. Even socks for new babies or socks with ten toes.
And who are the Twisted Sisters? A hospice nurse, post-doc scholar, organic farmer, assistant attorney general for the state of Oregon, high school teacher, finance and operations manager, touch therapist, mom, and more.
From Library Journal
The Twisted Sisters are a group of women in Oregon who delight in making one-of-a-kind hand-spun, dyed, and knitted socks from scratch. This book about how they do it is chock-full of color photos of gorgeous socks you'll never see for sale at your local Wal-Mart.
The author, an accomplished hand spinner and knitter, assumes that the reader already knows how to knit and spin and wants to go to the next level of sock-making creativity by dyeing or hand painting hand-spun yarn to make signature socks. Included are guidelines for dyeing yarn or roving using hot and cold pour dyeing, spot dyeing, and dyeing with Kool-Aid, as well as suggestions for spinning the yarn to maximize the effects of dyeing and, finally, methods of designing and knitting perfectly-fitting socks.
For its selected audience, this is the best nontechnical resource to take you through the processes of dyeing, spinning, and designing socks. Highly recommended for public libraries where demand warrants.
